KIRKUS REVIEW

A definitive but dry biography of the missionary-explorer whose deeds opened South Africa to the rest of the world. Livingstone's childhood with his hard working, religious family prepared him well for the arduous journeys of his later life. But if we are told these to the minutest detail of place, time and even political situation- the greatness of Africa, the sense of Livingstone's destiny and more importantly, native feeling- are lost in the meticulous exactitude.
